Ms. Burnett from New York NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

First Grade Classroom Library!

My students need books to read at school and at home.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them. I want them to know that I believe in them and they can do anything.

I teach at a Title 1 School in NYC where 100 percent of our children receive free breakfast and lunch.

Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn. They want to learn all they can so they can be successful.

My Project

My school does not have a library and so getting books for my students to read has been an extremely difficult task. Ninety percent of my students are reading below grade level. I have tried to get donations of books in order to help them to improve their reading skills. My students are all from low income families therefore books are never on the shopping list. With additional books in my classroom I can give my students books to take home to read every night. My students are all eager to learn and I want to help them achieve their goals.
